Gaze of Love...

Then His gaze of love fell on me and bitterly I wept...
Jesus I need more of you...
my heart is wretched, my
flesh is corrupt.
I stumble, I fall, yet still you lift me up.
"You shall love the Lord your God with all Your heart, soul, and might..." (Deuteronomy 6:4).

All my heart Lord? Really?
Ok... but... alright... all of it... are you sure?...
Ok... here You go... take it... mold it.... re-order it...
What was that?
Oh... that part too...
but really, I...
Ok Lord... take my friends.... take my ministry... take my family...
who am I but Your servant?

How can I offer a sacrifice of Praise...
without a sacrifice?
What do I have to give?

"Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name." (Hebrews 13:15)

Even when my world is torn apart...
give thanks to Your name...
even when all around me has crumbled to pieces...
give thanks to Your name...
Praise you because You are My Lord...
Praise you because You are my Abba...
Praise You because You are my Redeemer,
my Savior,
my Love...
my All...

So here I am again... broken and weary...
but that times of refreshing may come...
I humbly seek You...
I love You... I need You...
Heal me... Restore me...
The refining fires burn hot...
a life of Faith doesn't mean a life of comfort...
I stretch, I reach, I press on...
to You and only You because You are all I need.

Then Your gaze of love fell on me and I fell at Your feet.
